The team passed through the room and entered a dark tunnel.
The arched tunnel was covered with white spider webs and they could hear rats rushing through the tunnel.
Angele glanced around, but the only thing he could see was darkness.
Suman was in front of the team; the torch he was holding brightened up the area around the team.
“From now on, please only cast spells when necessary so that the wizards above will not notice us. The sewer of the ancient city is not protected by any defensive devices so we have to proceed with caution.”
“What about the temperature aura?” someone asked.
“Same for the temperature aura,” Suman responded.
Mincola and Sella were a bit speechless. Their bodies were weak and they could not handle extreme cold.
After the temperature aura was deactivated, the tunnel was much colder than before.
Suman was leading the team in the front and Angele was still in the middle of the team.
A loud noise came from up ahead; it sounded like something fell.
Suman’s brow furrowed, he drew his scimitar and stopped.
“I’ll go take a look, proceed with caution. Messiah, go check the rear end.”
The two left the team and started moving slowly.
Angele stood in the middle of the team. Bella trusted him a bit more after the incident, but she was standing close to Angele with her hands on the sword handles.
Becky was walking beside Angele and Mincola was checking on her constantly.
“They still don’t trust you.” Becky sent these words through energy particles. Angele restricted her ability to cast spells, but she could still transfer words using energy particles.
“Of course, they wouldn’t even talk to me if they don’t need my help.” Angele shrugged slightly.
He looked at Suman.
Suman was slowly advancing with the torch in hand; suddenly, his body blurred and made some loud noise.
“Suman! What happened!” Sella questioned right away.
Suman waved his hand and said, “I’m alright, but I found something strange. Come here, everyone.”
The team quickly moved to Suman and noticed that Suman’s body was sinking into the ground. The bricks on the ground all broke into pieces.
The bricks under Sella’s feet also broke and she started sinking as well.
“Huh?” Mincola sounded confused. He walked to the right of the Sella and Suman.
Suddenly, he slowly floated in the air. It almost looked like he was flying.
“What…?” Suman and the other team members all looked at Mincola.
“This is probably the legendary force trap…” Mincola was not sure if he was correct.
“Gravity trap to be exact.” Angele raised his arms and it felt like someone was pressing his arms down as he leaned forward slightly.
“Huh? Do you know anything about the trap, Green?” Mincola looked at Angele.
“Yeah, gravity trap will prevent small creatures or insects from moving through the area. It’s designed by the ancient wizards and it shouldn’t be a problem for us.” Angele nodded. “Areas like this are usually safe, but we still need to proceed with caution.”
Messiah stepped forward and said, “Let’s keep moving then. Let me lead the way.”
The team started advancing again; the gravity was constantly changing randomly.
Time passed slowly. Around 20 minutes later, they finally saw something different ahead.
A woman with long blonde hair appeared in Angele’s sight.
The woman was wearing a gray cloak, her skin was clean, she had large breasts and long legs—the woman’s body was quite attractive.
She was standing on the left quietly, not moving. She was wearing a brown leather skirt and tight leather armor. The outfit was quite revealing.
The woman was facing the other side and her face was covered by a golden helmet. The only thing Angele could see was her back.
“Hey!” Messiah shouted with the dagger in hand. “Are you alive?”
The woman did not respond.
“Be careful, this is a sewer of an ancient city.”
“Don’t worry, it’s just a dead body, I think,” Angele spoke. “She was probably left here by the ancient wizards. It’s a special punishment called Devour; but, her location is a bit strange.”
“Devour? I’ve heard about it,” Mincola interrupted, “however, I don’t think the body should be here.”
“Let’s go take a look.” Angele shrugged and stepped forward. He moved closer to the woman.
Angele walked to the woman and covered his right hand with black armor. He took the helmet off the woman’s head and turned her around.
The team members all inhaled deeply.
Suman walked to Sella with a strange expression on his face.
“Well, at least her body looked great… I guess imagination is always better than the reality…” Messiah wanted to observe the woman’s body before he saw her face.
Angele smiled. “I didn’t expect her to look like that. I thought she must be a beauty…”
The woman’s face was extremely weird. It was not rotten and her skin was still clean.
However, the woman had the face of a middle-aged man with a long beard. The face just did not fit her balanced body.
Suman stepped forward and said, “Alright, let’s keep moving. According to the information I collected, there are three more dangerous areas ahead.” He started advancing again.
More and more dead bodies that looked like statues appeared in the tunnel as they walked. Most of the dead bodies were perfectly preserved and it almost looked like they were just sleeping.
“Be careful, everyone!” Suman advised. “The first dangerous area is ahead.”
“What do you think, Green? There are so many dead bodies here.” Mincola looked at Angele and Becky.
“I think we just need to be careful. The nest of spider men is ahead. The spider men consumed their brains and preserved their bodies using poison. That’s why they look like they’re alive,” Angele responded in a calm tone. “Spider men are weak, even apprentices can handle them; the only problem is the spider queen.”
“Spider men, huh? I didn’t expect to see them here.” Sella took out a notebook from the pouch and started writing things down. “You know a lot, Green.”
“I collected information from random books.” Angele smiled.
The team increased their speed.
The walls of the tunnel were covered with white spider webs and it almost looked like the tunnel was frozen. However, the tunnel was not cold at all and they could feel the warmth as they advanced.
The further they walked, the more spider webs were there in the tunnel.
The team prepared their weapons and proceeded with caution.
Suddenly, they could hear insects making noises ahead.
A white shadow appeared in the light from the torch. The team stopped and looked at the white shadow. The men on the team were a bit excited.
Messiah whistled and said, “So, these are the spider men? I think the nobles of the countries will love it. They’ll pay a big price for them.”
“She’s beautiful…” Sella praised. As a female, she also thought the creature she saw was pretty.
What they met was a spider girl that was half naked. The bottom half of her body was that of a spider and translucent. Her long black hair was smooth like seaweed.
The girl stared at the team members and her sight fell upon Suman. Her upper body was naked and it seemed like she did not care that her breasts were exposed to the air.
Strangely, the girl looked innocent and lovely for some reason.
The noise was from her mouth and it almost sounded like she was asking something.
Mincola’s brow furrowed. “She was speaking the spider language and I can understand some of it. Be careful, everyone, she might be a threat.”
“Don’t worry. Spider men are weak and they shouldn’t be a threat to us,” Angele interrupted. “I think she’s asking if we want to reproduce with her. Spider men want to strengthen their bloodline by reproducing with stronger beings. They think that stronger partners will bring them stronger children.”
“We? With spiders? How do we even do it…” Messiah looked speechless. “I’ll volunteer if you tell me how to have sexual intercourse with this thing.”
“Well, it depends… You just need to accept their body features…” Angele blinked his eyes.
“They have pretty faces and their bodies are soft. That’s part of the evolution. Most importantly, the spider men’s gender will change based on how you want them to be.” Angele chuckled and explained, “So, if you’re really interested, just go ahead and do it. Don’t worry, spider men won’t attack the strong beings that are willing to reproduce with them. Also, I heard that some people think the spider men give them more pleasure than human beings.”
“I’ll pass…” Messiah glanced at Bella and gave up.
“Let’s keep moving then, I’ll handle her.” Angele stepped forward and drew a black dagger slowly.
The spider girl was scared, she took several steps back.
“This is the first time I saw a living spider man and I want to do some experiments.” Angele rubbed the blade of the dagger coated with a red glow. The blade was eye-catching in the darkness.
“Wait, Green, what are you going to do?” Sella suddenly questioned.
“I’m going to dissect her here so I can do experiments later, why?” Angele waved his dagger, it was just a normal procedure for him.
“She’s young… and I think she wasn’t the one who killed those people…” Sella looked at the spider girl.
Angele nodded. “You’re probably right. I think her ancestors did it.”
“Can you let her leave?” Sella stared at Angele in the eyes.
Angele was a bit surprised after he heard that and looked at the others.
Suman and Bella supported Sella’s words, but Messiah remained silent. Dorman was just standing there with a smile on the face.
Mincola could understand why Angele wanted to kill the spider girl, but there was a bitter smile on his face.
